“While I have been a regular reader this site for a while, it’s because of things like this and the article that claimed all religious people are delusional that I generally don’t feel comfortable commenting (let alone donating).” MIA, nor it’s authors, ever claimed any expertise or authority. This is a place for discussion, which includes virtually everyone, and virtually all views. It’s especially a place for publishing articles that an author is serious about, but would never be posted elsewhere due to social, political or professional concern. Don’t get personally attached to MIA. It is a place where people who feel silenced and/or otherwise abused by psychiatry/mental health systems, etc, can get published. That should remain regardless of whatever else may get caught in the grinder; politics, religion.
